Hydrogen Fraud

Some may have heard of a plan to drive Hydrogen-fueled cars across the country, in a demonstration of technical maturity and practicality. It’s a great idea if you can do it, but it turns out to have been a lie. Says Gizmodo:

…if you’re going to heavily promote your cross-country trek as the “first ever” for hydrogen-powered vehicles, at least make sure large, 1,000-mile stretches of it did not involve having the vehicles carried along on flatbed trucks. This was the case today as the “Hydrogen Road Tour ’08” wrapped up in Los Angeles after its 60-strong vehicle fleet entered the Los Angeles Coliseum. From Rolla, Missouri, to Albuquerque, New Mexico, the caravan was carried on the back of carbon-belching flat bed tractor trailer trucks. Doesn’t that kind of defeat the purpose of an alternative fuel road trip right then and there?

If the right tried something like this, trying to change public opinion and policy through fraud, the left would be screaming Reichstag. But will the green left suffer political consequences for their attempt at deception? Never.
